Review: SK-II Facial Treatment Cleansing Gel

Ever heard of SK-II Facial Treatment Cleansing Gel? I’ve never heard of this item until I decided to be a complete SK-II fan and wanted to use their full range for my face. This is their first step in the skincare routine: pre-cleanse.

SK-II Facial Treatment Cleansing Gel retails for RM159 for 80g / RM197 for 100g. It comes in a tub – without a spatula which I don’t appreciate. There’s just germs everywhere if I keep scooping the product using my hands.

I took a decent amount (but way less than the recommended grape size) and massage onto my dry skin. After massaging some time, the product will turn into oil. After another 30 seconds, I’ll add water to emulsify the product and finally rinse it off.

My first impression of this is wow, there are tiny sparkly crystal bits in it! There’s no scent to it, which is a plus. It did a good job in removing my foundation but it cannot remove waterproof mascara, eyeliner or lipstick well. The sales attendant even told me to use a separate eye and lip makeup remover. But for this price tag, I’d expect this to be able to remove anything and makes my skin super soft afterwards (which it didn’t do lol). It’s just not worth it as there are other drugstore brands that works way better. So, I won’t be repurchasing this and save my money.
